Donna Kelce, the proud mother of two NFL stars, is gearing up for an exhilarating weekend as she prepares to attend her sons' debut games in the 2024 playoffs on Saturday and Monday consecutively.
Donna’s NFL Sons and Their Upcoming Games
Donna's eldest son, Jason Kelce, aged 36, is a valuable player for the Philadelphia Eagles. His team is set to tackle the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday. Two days prior, on Saturday, Donna's younger son, Travis Kelce, 34, a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, will take the field against the Miami Dolphins. This comes after he was forced to sit out the game on Sunday, January 7.
Harsh Weather Conditions and NFL’s Precautions
The game involving the Kansas City Chiefs, hosted in Missouri, might have to contend with severe cold, with temperatures potentially dropping as low as 2 degrees Fahrenheit. The NFL has planned several measures to combat the freezing conditions – distributing heavy coats and installing heated sideline benches are just a few precautions on their list.
Donna’s Plans and Traditions
As for Donna, she aims to keep warm in the skybox at Arrowhead Stadium, where the Chiefs' game will take place. Despite the luxuries of the skybox, she'll need to wrap herself in a winter coat and blanket, as the windows are expected to be left open. Donna is known for her strong support for her sons, often seen dressed in team gear, adorning bracelets that represent each team. These bracelets have a special significance – they were passed down to her by her stepmother who was also a team devotee.
Donna has a heartwarming ritual before each game. She sends her sons a text message, infused with a dash of humor or a cherished memory, to wish them luck. This touching habit serves as a token of her constant encouragement and unwavering support for her sons.
